The photon 'zooka is a rocket launcher replacement for Hacx which shoots torpedoes. The weapon is positioned on the right side of the screen because it is a shoulder-mounted weapon. The sprite of a flying torpedo is shifted to the right, imitating the offset of the gun's muzzle. Because of the sprite shift, shooting photon 'zooka next to a wall on the right side makes a part of the projectile be inside the wall, while its hitbox stays at the center and doesn't touch the wall.
At the moment of hitting a target, a direct hit damage is dealt to it, which is 20-160 points of damage, in round multiples of 20. After that, a poison dispersion occurs in 5 tics and deals a blast damage of 128 hit points at its center, in the radius of 128 units. Therefore, it does the similar amount of damage as the rocket launcher from Doom.
First appearance of the weapon is on the third level of the game, MAP03: Lava Annex (Hacx).
